Pastor Kenneth Reed was born to the late Deacon Arthur Reed, Sr., and the late Mother Eartha Bell Reed on October 19, 1964. His parents raised him, and his 11 siblings in the way of holiness, and taught him to always keep God first in his life. Because of this strong Christian upbringing, he is where he is today.
Pastor Reed is a graduate of the Detroit Public Schools and attended many workshops and completed many Biblical and Leadership Programs, as he loves studying the word of God. He is currently a student of Grace Bible College in Grand Rapids, MI. He was ordained first in his Elder’s Ordination Program by the late Bishop Walter L. Bogan, and served as Sunday School Superintendent, YPWW President, Minister, Elder, and many other positions at the Prayer Tabernacle Church of God in Christ under the leadership of Pastor C. James Starks before accepting his Pastoral calling. He is very active in the community surrounding his church and is currently a participant in numerous annual neighborhood outreach efforts. Under his leadership, the food pantry at Divine Favor Ministries has distributed over 75,000 pounds of food to needy individuals and families!
He is a loving husband and is proud to have by his side, his devoted wife, First Lady Ann Marie Reed, and is the proud father of three children, Kenneth, Jr., William Nicholas, and his baby girl Diamond.
In Pastor Reed’s words, “I will remain committed to stand on God’s word while running this race. The direction and length of my course has been determined by the Holy Spirit. Despite the obstacles and adversity associated with pastoral ministry, I’ll stay true to that course.” The Apostle Paul said it best. “Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:12-14
